The Auckland Climate Festival Te Huinga Aahuarangi o Taamaki Makaurau is being held throughout September. More than 150 events will be on offer.

They include:

  • Auckland Climate Festival’s free opening event, a dawn ceremony at the Auckland Botanic Gardens, centred around the theme: Ancestor, We. Ngaa hua o Wai.
  • A live ‘This Climate Business’ podcast session hosted by entrepreneur and publisher Vincent Heeringa, featuring Hon. James Shaw, School Strike 4 Climate organiser and Paekākāriki–Raumati Ward Councillor Sophie Handford.
  • A Zero Carbon breakfast in Takutai Square.
  •  A Vector Lights show, entertainment by musicians, exhibitions and arts around the city, a silent disco, film screenings, biking events, clean-ups, ethical fashion, artificial intelligence and economy workshops.

Michelle Kennedy, founder of the festival, says: “Coming together for a concentrated period each year provides us an anchor point, where we can align on ‘where we are at now’, and decide ‘where we want to be heading together’. It means that we can drive deep change, where the collective impact we generate is greater than the sum of its parts.”
